2 W.H. Moreland
Agrarian System of Moslem India: A Historical Essay with Appendices
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8175363207 / 9788175363205; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Agrarian System Of Moslem India Is In The Nature Of A Historical Essay On The Revenue Policy Of The Muslim Sultans And Emperors.Since The 13th Century An Appreciable Contact Had Been Established Between The Hindu And Islamic Agrarian Systems. The Main Subject Of Study Is An Examination Of The Methods By Which The State?s Share Of The Farmer?s Produce Was Assessed And Collected And Of The Arrangements Under Which Portions Of Produce Were Alienated In Favour Of The Intermediaries. The Main Purpose Is Not To Trace In Detail The Transition From The Moslem System To That Which Now Exists, But A Brief Reference Is Required To The Main Factors Which Have Operated Because It Is Only By Consciously Eliminating These Factors That We Can Reach A Just Idea Of The Conditions Which Prevailed In The Earlier Period.It Is A Common Place Of History That The Nineteenth Century Brought To Northern India A Degree Of Internal Tranquillity Which Had Not Previously Been Enjoyed; And That The Result Was Seen In A Rapid Growth Of Population And The Development Of Competition For Productive Land. In The Moslem Period, Such Competition, Scarcely Existed,Outside Relatively Small Areas; And We Have To Bear In Mind That, In Most Parts Of The Country, Land Was Waiting For Men With The Resources Necessary For Cultivation. Another Gift Of The Nineteenth Century Was What Is Conveniently Described As The Rule Of Law, Superseding By Degrees The Personal Rule Of The Moslem Period, While A Third Factor Was The Spread Of Benevolent Or Philanthropic Ideals Which Characterised The Country, Not Merely In India, But Throughout The Civilized World.

3 W.H. Moreland
From Akbar to Aurangzeb: A Study in Indian Economic History
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1972; 817069020X / 9788170690207; First Indian Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
W.H.Moreland's From Akbar to Aurangzeb is study in Indian Economic History of the first half of the seventeenth century during the reigns of the Mughal Emperors Jahangir and Shahjahan. This period is important from the standpoint of economic institutions and is marked by certain far-reaching changes which ushered in a new era in the commercial relations of India with the traders from the West. In the present work, Moreland has examined various details on the basis of hitherto-unpublished records of the Dutch, besides re-evaluating the English records of the period. Thus, he has succeeded in highlighting not only the changes that affected the balance of economic power, but has also analysed the most significant stages in the deterioration of Akbar's administrative institutions. The book is divided into ten chapters, beginning with the anylysis of the Asiatic environments. Chapters II to V deal, respectively, with the Development of Dutch and English Commerce of India, Changes in Foreign Commerce of India, the Establishment of New Markets in Western Europe and the Course of Indian Market. In Chapters VI to IX have been discussed Production and Consumption, the Economic Results of Famine, the Economic Influence of the Administration and the System of Taxation. In chapter X, Summary and Conclusion. Moreland has examined the economic forces vis--vis the administrative changes and their cumulative effect on the economy of the period, which, in his view, resulted in reducing the reward of production, leading ultimately towards national bankruptcy which eventually occurred. In the five Appendices, Moreland has elaborated the details pertaining to the Dutch English Companies, Early Dutch Exports to Europe, Mughal Revenue Statistics, Currency, Weights and Measures and a List of Authorities. Of added utility are two maps, one of the India and another, the Asiatic Seas, besides a detailed index. Printed Pages: 380 with 1 map. 002571

4 W.H. Moreland
From Akbar to Aurangzeb: A Study in Indian Economic History
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8175364653 / 9788175364653; Softcover; New; 
This is a study of Indian economic history. The economic position is sketched at the opening of the seventeenth century. The period covers the reigns of the Mughal Emperors Jahangir and Shah Jahan. Apart from chronological or dynastic consideration, this period has a unity of its own. In the region of commerce it is marked by the practical elimination of the Portuguese, the establishment of Dutch and English merchants in the country, and the first experimental phase of the newcomers` activities; while in the wider economic sphere it covers the most significant stage in the deterioration of Akbar`s adminstrative institutions.The author has tried to arrange in such a way that, while it should be intelligible to ordinary readers, it should serve serious students as an introduction to the original literature. The book is divided into ten chapters. In the five appendices, the author has elaborated the details pertaining to the Dutch and English companies. Early Dutch Exports to Europe, Mughal Revenue Statistics, Currency, Weights and Measures and a list of Authorities. The order of the study has been determined mainly by the nature of the material which are available. Printed Pages: 378 with 2 maps (1 folded). 107365

5 W.H. Moreland
India at the Death of Akbar: An Economic Study
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1983; 8170691311 / 9788170691310; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
India's fabulous wealth was a constant refrain in the narratives of European travelers of the 16-17th centuries. Was India so rich? Even a cursory reading of India's political history of that period shows-wars were common;nobles and rulers squandered their income; ostentation and not thrift was the ideal of the day; there was more of consumption, and less of production; the lawlessness on the highways, the administrative corruption and rapacity of tax-collectors discouraged commerce and industry; the rulers did not evince any interest in maritime trade. Yet the foreign merchants came. Why? W.H.Moreland's India at the death of Akbar tries to find the answers to this enigma. The text in eight chapters and the four appendices provides a wealth of information. The study is based on the accounts of English, Russian, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese. The fact that the author has focused attention on the quantitative aspects of production, consumption, distribution, exports, imports and shipping in terms of tonnage adds to the interest of the work. Historians, economists, social scientists and others will find this work extremely useful in their pursuits. Printed Pages: 340 with 2 maps. 002337

6 W.H. Moreland
India at the Death of Akbar: An Economic Study
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8186142800 / 9788186142806; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book attempts to supply such a beginning, by furnishing an account of the economic position at the close of Akbar`s reign; there is little prospect that adequate materials for a similar study of earlier periods will ever become available, but our knowledge of the closing years of the 16th century appears to be sufficient to justify the attempt. The aim of the book is to present a sketch of the economic life of India at the opening of the 17th century that is to say, at the period immediately antecedent to the first appearance of those new forces which were destined to exercise an increasing and eventually predominant influence on the development of the country. Starting from 1608 when the English ship Hector reached Surat, it is possible to trace the economic story of the next three centuries, first in the narratives of travellers and the early Letter-Books of the East India Company, and then in the more copious official records and publications of later times to that a well-defined period for study is within the reach of our academic institutions. Printed Pages: 337 with 1 map. 107371
